  5. I loved Mary so much and was so glad I met her in early 2017. I was so fortunate to be close to her these last few years but wish there was more.
    She was thoughtful, kind & full of life. She loved helping those around her and always signed off by saying “I love ya”
    You will be missed, Mary
    I love ya!

  6. My Momma comforts me whenever I am very sad or even when I’m very mad
    She wipes away all my tears vanishes all my fears
    Although she’s far away she’ll always be here to stay
    Although it feels I’m pushing my heart to the limit
    I’ll always remember that she was my momma & nobody will ever replace My Momma’s loving face

    Rip 🪦 Momma Mary Lou Walker
